If I knew and understood how it all works, I would play around with my 401K. I have it in the default mode. It is doing fine and making money but probably not as good as it could be. I have seen folks try to explain it on here but it is all jibber jabber to me that makes absolutely ZERO sense.
I've been talking about this for nearly a year. Since the Election the markets have been on fire. The Dow is up 26% the NASDAQ is up 29% and the S&P is up 20%.
It is true that the markets were trending higher before the election but its no comparison to the last 19 months since the election.
The Dow increasing at a 4.5 times higher rate under Trump than Obama
The NASDAQ increasing at a 2.4 times higher rate under Trump than Obama
The S&P increasing at a 3.1 times higher rate under Trump than Obama
And its not just the Markets. The entire economy is in great shape. Consumer confidence at 13 year high, Unemployment at over a decade long lows, Per capita income is at all time high. GDP finally back over 3% after years below 2% even below 1%.
ISIS has been crushed, He's moving forward on the border wall, Illegal immigration is down, he's targeting illegal violent immigrants(MS-13), No more individual mandate on healthcare, nearly everyone taxes are going down including corporations.
He wasn't my first choice for president, but its refreshing to see a president actually do the things he said he would do during the campaign.
